  I was not sure about putting this here or over on the travel guide , but seeing that it is not really a tourist place  and sort of a long way to take a drive  I thought of making a post here and have you take a look at some pictures I took while working there ....


This the dam and spill way on La Grande River at Its the Robert Bourassa Dam . the spill way is 10 steps , each step is 122m wide 150m deep 10m high
The dam ... Has a height of 162m its lenght is 2 835 m long It is 550m wide at the base .. It took from 1974 to 1978 to build only being able to work on it 8 month out of the year ...23 millioncubic meters of fill to make it ....

That spillway is amazing ! ! !
It's cut out of the ledge that was there ?
Sometimes the magnitude of what people think up
and undertake amazes me  :)
